Enzyme discovery could see devices literally create energy from thin air

The enzyme is called Huc and has been mooted as a potential alternative to other renewable energy sources. If production can be scaled up, air-powered electronic devices could become viable in the future.

Devices that literally create energy from thin air could be made real thanks to a newly-discovered enzyme that transforms hydrogen into an electrical current, scientists have said.

The finding was made in light of recent work by the same Australian team that showed many bacteria draw on hydrogen from the atmosphere as an energy source.
